Marion Zimmer Bradley: A tribute by Lisa Noble


Mi’ lady has brought Camelot to life! She has taken Avalon out of the mists and for a “bright ans shining moment” into the light. Marion wove a brilliant tapestry of history and magic and ancient Celtic dreams. So, thus properly garbed, I did venture beyond the land of fey; there to find Atlantis and sacred groves and castles by the Irish Sea. Adorned like a queen in my cloak of dreams I stand upon the mystic shore; the full moon guiding the ebb and flow of my own blood, my own ancient ancestral memories. As I look out to sea through a glamour of magic a wall of mist parts. Just beyond the horizon, just on the edge of my imagination, She who is the Mother of the land searches for me from far-far away, patiently awaiting my return. Standing on the golden shore, the Lady of the Lake, gazes out to sea…

Happy March 17, may it be fair and green like the land across the sea…
